Rating: Loved it!

I HAVE A CURSE.
I HAVE A GIFT.

I'M A MONSTER.
I'M MORE THAN HUMAN.

MY TOUCH IS LETHAL.
MY TOUCH IS POWER.

I AM THEIR WEAPON.
I WILL FIGHT BACK.

In this electrifying debut filled with pulse-pounding romance, intoxicating villainy, and high-stakes choices, Tahereh Mafi presents a world as riveting as the Hunger Games and a superhero story as thrilling as the X-Men.

My Thoughts 

This is by far one of the best dystopians I have read in a loooong time!!!


Tahereh Mafi has created a truly unique voice with her main character, Juliette. Cloaked in mystery, Juliette's secrets are slowly revealed to readers as she comes to terms with them herself. The romance between Juliette and Adam is very intense, but I never found it to be inappropriate.

And that ending? WOW! I am SO FRICKING EXCITED for the next installment in this series!

I am a big fan of no-spoiler reviews and letting each reader find out about the plot on their own, so that's all I'm going to say. On that note, though, I hope you go pick up a copy of Shatter Me and read it for yourself! This is such a great book, and I hope you all love it as much as I do!
